Hot Off the Presses
Best Local Spots View Shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor Shower
Stargazers Won't Want to Miss This One This Sunday!
There might be a lot of people calling in sick on Monday morning! Peak viewing of the Perseid Meteor Shower will take place on Sunday into Monday.  Get to see upward of 60 meteorites flash before your eyes per hour. The Perseid meteor shower has some added bonuses this year: It will occur on a night when the moon is in its waning crescent phase, which means the moonlight will interfere only slightly with your view of the falling stars. The meteors are certainly bright, but they are actually only tiny objects, usually no more than a grain of sand. However, as they travel at speeds of up  to 37 miles per second, these small particles put on quite a brilliant show.
